Fantastic accommodations - we were upgraded to a sea-facing room for our honeymoon, which was beautiful. The food and beverages were delicious and reasonably priced. Had a great time at the famed afternoon tea. Nice relaxing way to start the trip before transferring to the safari lodge.

the 3 out of 5 is due to the following reason: even though the hotel is self i find to be a on a good side, first of all, it's a bit outdated, which makes it not good value for money. keeping in mind the amount of money you paid, i would expect newer facilities and cleanser enviroment.
